If the words “glossy X-wing fighter shaver” gives you goosebumps on your clean-shaven chin, this is what you need. The force is strong with Philips, which has launched three limited edition electric shavers in time for the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi… and Christmas. The one inspired by Poe Dameron (played by Oscar Isaac) is the star — it’s built to resemble an X-wing fighter, complete with scratched metal finishing, red stripes and flickering X-wing symbol. The Reflex Action system on the shaver guarantees a speedy close shave, and its eight-directional ContourDetect flex heads automatically recalibrates to every curve… are we still talking about shavers, or have we moved on to shaving, we mean, saving the galaxy in a fighter craft?
Then there’s the BB-8-inspired shaver, which really looks like if BB-8 had been scraped and recycled into an electric shaver (did we just say that?) The most utilitarian of the three is the Stormtrooper shaver — not as fancy as the others, but, as the press release says: “Don’t be fooled by the humble appearance of this ground soldier, as the force is equally strong with this one, featuring ComfortCut Blade System to get as close as possible to the skin while protecting it from nicks and cuts.”
Get these shavers for the hairy Star Wars geeks in your life, you must.
Available at www.philips.com.sg, as well as from selected electronic stores, major departmental stores and authorised dealers.
From November 27 to December 3, visit the Philips Master Your Shave pop-up store at Civic Plaza at Bugis+ mall to check out the limited edition shavers, take Insta-worthy photos in a Star Wars toy box and grab selfies with Star Wars mascots.
